Tasting Notes

This second wine is made with the same care and attention as their first wine but without such intense aspects making it a more approachable ready-to-drink style, the perfect introduction to a ‘Grand Vin.

Producer details

Lafon-Rochet's vineyards lie on clay-gravel soils and are superbly sited in the south of the commune opposite Château Lafite. The wines are matured in oak barriques (40% new) for 18 months. Lafon-Rochet's wines were, for many years, criticised for being excessively tannic and austere and generally were considered to lack charm. In the last decade or so, improved viticultural techniques and a greater percentage of Merlot in the final blend has led to purer expressions of fruit and the wines being generally more supple and elegant. Lafon-Rochet needs at least 10 years of bottle ageing to show at its best.
